Whatta a Stress Management Article

A lecturer, at Harvard University , when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, "How heavy is this glass of water?" Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g. The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long you try to hold it." "If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance.

"In each case, it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes." He continued, "And that's the way it is with stress management. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on." "As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden." "So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down. Don't carry it home. You can pick it up tomorrow. Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can." "Relax; pick them up tomorrow after you've rested. Life is short. Enjoy it!

And then he shared some ways of dealing with the burdens of life:

* Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.

* Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

* It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

* Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

* Never buy a car you can't push.

* Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

* Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

* Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

* When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

* You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

* Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

* If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Whatta A Reality

"Somehow I do not understand people around me, because no one acts truly. Everyone wants to impress someone, praise someone by expecting something from them, there is no reality in this World. People are living without any Morals and Values set for them. If someone is good at something, they make him/her a Hero, expecting them to call them, remember them. The person who is made Hero above also after understanding that his/her status among the people, started acting as if they are the only Heroes existing in this World."

"The whole purpose of living is lost, there is no one Real here, everyone wants to be a prototype of someone who achieved something. Why don't people understand that they can also do something to become a Hero, instead of praising someone and expecting something from them."

"Everyone need to understand that, they got a hidden talent in them. Need to recognize that and work towards it to become a Hero by themselves."
